About Context

DESIGN STORY

When Context was first introduced it challenged virtually every preconceived notion about how the workplace should look and act. It was a radical approach, but it was a glimpse into the future that few would argue with today. Context focused on work process. On team enterprise and collaboration. The furniture was designed specifically to support knowledge work and the information that drives it. It was freestanding furniture with an office systems pedigree. Moveable. Changeable. Highly adaptable and infinitely re-adaptable. It was inherently in tune with the revolution in technology that would soon connect established companies with new markets, and new companies with markets that were only beginning to emerge.

Context symbolized the dynamics of organizational effectiveness. It broke down barriers and opened up new possibilities. This was furniture for a new generation of worker, and a new kind of company. It set new expectations for individual user comfort and control. And it fit anywhere.
